The AMHS 2022/2023 Winter Ferry Schedule is now available for reservations.

“We heard from our communities, and we’re listening,” said DOT&PF Commissioner Ryan Anderson. “We adjusted the Winter schedule based on the feedback received and will keep on working with Alaska’s coastal communities to minimize service disruptions.”

The public will see changes in the winter schedule from what was initially proposed which were made to further fill service gaps, including added service for Prince William Sound while the M/V Aurora undergoes its scheduled two-month annual overhaul. Initially, the department intended to bring the M/V Columbia back into service to cover service gaps during overhauls but has decided the most dependable option will be the continued utilization of the M/V Kennicott and the M/V Matanuska throughout the winter months. The M/V Tazlina will provide additional service during the M/V LeConte’s overhaul, pending crew availability. The M/V Tustumena’s sailing schedule was adjusted to provide several sailings in Prince William Sound. Additionally, service has been added to accommodate coastal communities’ special events to the greatest extent practicable. The department will also contract supplemental service if needed to cover service disruptions.
